Great Britain has a reputation for design excellence and innovation on an international scale, a tradition that has been in place since the Industrial Revolution (if not before); and one that Joseph & Kingsley are proud to be a part of. The Decorex International show – comprising the best in design from interiors to architecture – has long been a celebration of that fact.

Now in its 36th year, this weekend Decorex will be showcasing talents such as Nina Campbell and Hermès at its prestigious new Kensington Palace venue. Alongside the 300 exhibitors showcasing their wares, this year’s event includes a spectacular entrance designed by Kit Kemp MBE and a luxurious Champagne Bar by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. There will also be a range of seminars featuring leading members of the design field, to be held in special-themed tents throughout the expo.

Visitors – including a representative or two from Joseph & Kingsley! – will flock to the event, which takes place until the 25th September, in their thousands. We shall report back with our impressions in due course – and indeed, perhaps we may be inspired to add a new facet to our kitchen design service or an additional ‘Inspiration’ to the collection as a result…!
